    This top-heavy Cooper Black is not custom lettering; it’s Photo-Lettering’s Ziptop Cooper Black from their bizarre and groovy line of “Zip-Top” fonts.

      Makes me think of Supercooper by Alphabet Innovations (1970). Similar kind of alteration, but quite different connotations.

      Yeah, the ’70s produced exaggerated proportions on the top and bottom (in type and fashion).

      And if you really want to go funhouse with the Cooper distortion there was also Scorpio and Somalia.
